Boardwalk Empire Season 3 First Look: Is a New Dysfunctional Romance Blossoming?

Maybe little Tommy Darmody stands a chance after all.

Orphaned at the end of Boardwalk Empire‘s second season, the son of the dearly departed Jimmy and Angela was left in the care of his psychotic grandmother Gillain (Gretchen Mol). But based on the first batch of Season 3 photos released by HBO, Richard Harrow has taken a hands-on role in the little one’s upbringing. But the seductive look Madame Darmody is throwing the war vet’s way has us worried. (Note to R.H.: Resist her charms — the woman’s 50 shades of cray cray.)

Elsewhere, Margaret continues to play Nucky’s dutiful spouse (emphasis on play), Agent Van Alden looks as angry and creepy as ever, and new series regular Bobby Cannavale passes the period test with flying colors.

Boardwalk Empire returns Sunday, Sept. 16.

  • Looking good, Bobby Cannavale. Richard Harrow is probably my favorite character on the show. He’s fascinated me ever since his first scene on the show when he and Jimmy talked about the war in that doctor’s waiting room. Though I do wish they hadn’t done that scene where he shot and killed the crying kid. That was pretty cold and heartless. But I’m trying hard to block that from my memory and just concentrate on how interesting he’ll be in a father figure role to Jimmy’s kid. Gillian does scare the crap out of me, I hope he can keep the upper hand with her.

      • It was in the season one finale. It was the youngest D’Allassio brother-he was like late teens/early twenties, so yeah he was young but he was also part of a criminal enterprise that had tried to take down Nucky and co.

  • ugh I hate Gillian so much, I hope she dies this season.
    I’m glad Richrad still has contact with Jimmy’s kid but he better be careful around crazy Gillian.

  • Thanks for posting the pictures. Can’t wait for Season 3 of Boardwalk Empire! Would not be surprised that Gillian may be after Richard. If she survives long enough throughout the duration of the show, I wouldn’t be surprised if she ends up with Jimmy’s son. ;) She reminds me of a female version of John Huston’s character in the film Chinatown. Speaking of which, it was only recently I discovered that Jack Huston (Richard) is his grandson. Had no idea.

  • Yeah I’m a Lil ticked they killed off Jimmy he was my fav (firearm too), but I’m sure hbo will bring someone else in the mix. Plus it was an amazing way to end the season. I wish Nucky would finally leave his “wife” already she makes me mad.
